DAGGETT –  Daggett, a town located 10 miles east of Barstow, had a complete water distribution failure on Friday, June 7, according to the San Bernardino County Office of Emergency Services (OES).

“On June 7, the San Bernardino County Office of Emergency Services (OES) was notified of a complete failure of Daggett’s water distribution system, leading to the loss of the domestic water supply and fire hydrant services,” says a statement on the county website

OES says they coordinated a multi-agency response involving the county Public Health (DPH), county Environmental Health Services (EHS), local fire services, county Public Works (DPW), Fleet Management, and California state agencies.

The agencies implemented an emergency water provision plan to support more than 800 affected residents.

2,412 gallons of water provided

OES says that their department and DPH delivered approximately 12 pallets of bottled water. 

County Fleet Management and DPW supported logistics. They deployed a generator and ADA-compliant shower and toilet facilities to the Daggett Community Service Center. The DPW crew worked to ensure full functionality for immediate public use.

The total resources provided include:

  • 2,412 gallons of water
  • 8,520 cans of Blue Can 50-year Water
  • 2,400 cans of Simpler Life 100-year Water
  • 2,328 16.9-oz bottles of water
  • ADA restroom/shower trailer
  • Combo restroom trailer
  • 2 generators

How to be prepared for emergencies

The county says by Sunday afternoon, the water system was restored to operational status. Although water quality testing continued, the county advised residents to follow a boil water notice as a safety measure. The boil water notice was lifted on Monday, June 10.
